After searching for the last 5 hours for additional information on why the site closed. I will take FP's word on the subject. It may be possible that he information that was given to me might have been a sham. I don't know. I was hoping that someone could shed some clearer light on the subject; however, I may have been the victim of another bogus website.

Either way I still want everyone to know that the site was shut down.

I'm not trying to debunk anything - I didn't even know for sure if the link I posted was affiliated with the thunderbay indymedia in question. There are other groups with similar names. That was just what came up in a GOOGLE search when I looked. I always try to keep track of censorship because it bugs me. If indeed thunderbay's computer systems were seized, I wish someone would explain why.

This is the link from which I posted the above:

All threads:

Whatever happened, the Thunderbay site is certainly down. Only a blank page is there.

Now I'm off to read what's at the new link posted by Darrell...

Your comments did not bother me. I have just been having some problems with this site since I allowed other people to post videos for me. That is why you see areas on the forums that say deleted next to my name.

Actually I was hoping that someone could give me better information on this issue. All I was given was a printed copy of what supposedly came off the web. After viewing it, I attempted to gather more information; however, my browser was acting up and I couldn't find anything else concerning this issue. That was part of the reason why I posted this on the forums.

The other reasons was to inform the members of our movie community, that they may need to find alternatives for uploading movies that the Internet Archive may not accept. My personal belief is that any independent artist should have a chance to get his or her work shown. I do not believe that all the videos rejected at this site are a violation of copyright laws. For example; I have attempted many times to place my music video
"How will I laugh Tomorrow... When I can't even smile today" on this site. However, everytime I upload it here, it is frozen by the curiator because they claim it breaks the copyright code.
Maybe in some ways it might, considering the video footage does come from the second season of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer; however, other sites have accepted it and it has done fair in these locations. It was available for download at this location; however, currently all that is available is a windows media stream located at
